Went to OCMA's benefit auction last night and had a great time. I'm very happy to report that I got the Mark Dutcher piece I wanted. I originally fell for it during a studio visit but he had it committed to OCMA for their auction. I figured I could kill two birds with one stone, support the museum and get one of Mark's awesome pieces. I brought a camera but completely forgot to take any pictures. Just imagine lots of fabulous people were there. Also a heads-up to look for Mark in the Nov. issue of Teme Celeste were they will be doing a feature on LA Painters you should know, and in Oct. he will be mentioned in LA Weekly's special art issue. Oh, and don't forget you'll get to see lots of his work in Feb. here at The Office.
On a Side Note: View From the Edge asked that I let you all know about an opportunity to win a mini photo collection that will include, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Toshio Shibata, Susan Derges & Oliver Boberg. All you have to do is buy a couple of $10 raffle tickets that support ACP for your shot to win. See VFTE for details.
